Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

My favourite part of my daily routine is the walk from Central station to the office. Every day I see the same faces during my route. The blonde woman who’s always late, the Asian couple in constant relationship flux (they walk on opposite sides of the path if they’ve fought...

Sokyo, Pyrmont

I’m a huge Dragon Ball Z fan. It might not be the greatest anime of all time but it is easily my favourite. I watched it religiously growing up. It taught me so many lessons that I still carry with me to this day; the power of hard work, how...

Devon by Night, Surry Hills

Jealousy and I have never really made each other’s acquaintance. In a past life when I was actually dating people, I never minded if my girlfriend would hang out with her male friends or whatever. This was mainly due to my past self’s supreme confidence. In my mind, if you...

Tim Tams are an Australian classic like me taking a girl out to dinner to have her tell me we're great friends.

Scout’s Honour (Redfern)

I finished dinner five minutes ago yet I'm salivating. That's just a murderer's row of quality ingredients all under the one roof. It's like the cast of Love Actually.
Three Williams (Redfern)

Three Williams (Redfern)

My co-workers visited Three Williams in the morning and told me that the coffee was pretty amazing. Due to the fact that I have trust issues built up over years of lies from my parents (I'm still recovering from Santa being just some dude with a fake beard), I had...

Anita Cafe (La Mamma Del Gelato), Chippendale

Everyone that follows me on Instagram knows that I still have a bit of a problem when it comes to ice cream. So you can imagine the chain of events that unfolded upon me learning of a new gelato place that was garnering a heap of praise. I just had to...

Imagine if someone had told you that 'The Dark Knight' was just an okay movie. Pieces of my brain would still be scattered across the cinema floor if someone had managed to lower my expectations for the movie I watch every Valentine's Day (yes, Batman is my valentine. I'm pretty...
Shake Shack, New York

Shake Shack, New York

Shake Shack should be a national heritage site. It should be placed on all 'places to visit' brochures of every city fortunate enough to boast one of (if not the best) burger franchises in the Milky Way. Am I being hyperbolic? Hell, I might be underselling the greatest burger experience...

Spoiler alert: We had two dessert courses because...just because, okay?

There is nothing wrong with having high expectations, that just means you have high standards and that you're not willing to settle for anything less than a superb crab po boy.
Chur Burger, Surry Hills (Katy Perry Edition)

Chur Burger, Surry Hills (Katy Perry Edition)

The pork belly burger had my heart racing in my skin tight jeans and it'll definitely be in my teenage dreams tonight.
The Choc Pot, Burwood

The Choc Pot, Burwood

One more time for dramatic effect; this might be the best tea I've ever had. The scent of passionfruit seduced me completely and the staff at the Choc Pot was really confused as to why I was suddenly topless in public view.
Ippudo Sydney, CBD

Ippudo Sydney, CBD

Do you remember your first kiss? I do. It was in a game of truth or dare and it was with a girl I didn't really like. There were half a dozen pre-pubescents watching me as I closed my eyes at the last second. Is it possible to ever recreate...
Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine, Chinatown

Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine, Chinatown

Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine might feature some of the most photogenic dishes in Sydney. I just couldn't believe how magnificent a sight the dumplings made encased in their bird's next container.
Sushi Hotaru, Town Hall

Sushi Hotaru, Town Hall

Eel sushi is my favourite. Whoever figured out that cream cheese and eel are best friends deserves whatever they want in life. My two eel topped morsels were quite large and topped with deep fried crisps. I ate these two so fast that the flavours barely registered. When they did,...
Jazz City Milk Bar, Darlinghurst

Jazz City Milk Bar, Darlinghurst

Both were very good by themselves, but combined in one bite with a slight dip into maple syrup? Scrumptous. Something about all the different flavours and textures working in harmony created the most fantastic food party in my mouth.
Taste of Shanghai, Ashfield

Taste of Shanghai, Ashfield

I gasped slightly when this was placed on our table. The fish looked so intimidating and yet it was bathed in sweet and sour sauce. It reminded me of the scene in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban when Neville imagined Professor Snape in his grandmother's clothing.

I’m far from perfect. I always forget to untie my shoes when I get home from work and glare at myself in the mirror the following morning. I’m pretty much impossible to contact after 8:30pm (homies know that the boy likes to sleep early). I’m the worst disciplinarian of all time (I also double as...

My old man has plenty of regrets in his life but one decision that haunts him is still the purchase of a BBQ that we only ever used once. My old man has a very small circle of friends that consists of my mother and me. My mother doesn’t like BBQ and I don’t trust...

It’s been a long time coming. McDonalds and I go way back. It’s a huge reason as to why I’m iFat and not iStayInDecentShape This was supposed to be the place I went to for my one hundredth review. Olde faithful, yee old McDonald (without a farm) but things kept popping up. You’re not going...

For most dudes, you stop making more male friends at around 23. Don’t ask me how I got there, it was wisdom imparted upon me from my brother in law and I trust him because he’s rocking a killer beard right now. Honestly? My male friends have been around the same since I finished high...

Well, this isn’t regular scheduled programming. I know, I can already visualise the angry emails I’m going to get: “You’re supposed to be a food blogger! This is the biggest disappointment since Tobey Maguire took a metaphorical dump on everyone’s chest and called it Spiderman 3.” Readers know that iFat is more of a blog...

Officially, he may be my little cousin but we were more like brothers growing up. Due to his parents’ weird working hours, we would have him at our house during the entirety of the school holidays and the two of us would wreak havoc across the neighbourhood. We sold drugs, we sold women and we...

I like to branch out and visit hidden gems and shed a little spotlight on some of the lesser known eateries that Sydney has to offer. Sure, even the most popular spots could use a second opinion but I rather be the first voice to sing the praises of an establishment I have an affinity...

Beyond the Food with Nutellasum

Every day there are new food bloggers who pop up and join the food sampling army. I love this about the community; it’s constantly growing with fresh perspectives, new tastebuds and more tragic tales about how some random food item reminds them of an especially bad breakup or the time a girl made them wait...

I have a lot of bad tendencies (always dating the wrong women, getting the same bad haircut at the same bad salon, eating one extra bite even though my stomach is perfectly content) but the one I hate the most is my knack for getting sick just as a break/holiday is coming up. My throat...

It’s only been four months since I wrote aboutĀ Devon CafeĀ and my morning routine is completely different to the one I described back then. I think the blonde woman who was always running late has been fired. The couple that was once on and off are now completely off. I still see the guy every now...

I’ve got a massive chip on my shoulder the metaphorical equivalent of three packs of Pringles. I’m not sure when it started but I can think of a number of incidents that contributed to it. Let’s go back to fourth grade for a bit. School photos had just arrived and my teacher was handing them...

2014 has been an absolutely incredible year for me. However, I fear that when I look back upon this year I’ll forget many of the amazing things that happened. Sure, I’ll remember the big picture things but what about all the little things that have come together and made this the Dark Knight of my...
